MINNEAPOLIS – Tyler Ivey’s storybook saga ended in the shower. He spent most of May 21 dealing with pain and pleasure.

Away from it all, Ivey cried in the shower. Four weeks of pent up emotions have passed the 25-year-old. A chapter of his career is coming to an end. Many thought it had just started.
“Imagine the joy and the bittersweet, the justification of sorts. So many emotions hit me at once, in a big ball, and it just hit me, ”Ivey said Friday. “I called my mom after the shower and I was just moved. Like, wow, it’s here. What a run this has been. I knew I wasn’t going to run for a long time.
